Young Romance: Simon & Kirby 1940-1950

Part 1 of 3! Exciting, innovative, and beautifully drawn romance stories by two towering titans of the field (and originators of the genre).In such best-selling titles as Young Love and Real Western Romances, Simon and Kirby delighted a generation of girls and women (and probably a fair number of boys and men as well) with hundreds of charming and endlessly inventive stories of love and heartbreak. This never-before reprinted material painstakingly restored in full color and edited by Michel Gange. So get out your handkerchiefs and enjoy the trials, tribulations, tragedies and triumphs of Suzi, Marjorie, Annaliese, Toni, Kathy, Sari... and 15 other star-crossed young lovers from half a century ago.

"Simon and Kirby tried to bring as much excitement to primarily psychological and interpersonal goings-on as to punching and flying." -Hillary Brown, Paste Magazine
